Hi there! It’s Cheiron here and today I am going to share a set of tags that I made with Alcohol Ink backgrounds using Dina’s Oops Oh Well stamp set. I love all of the sayings in the set so much and the moon faces that go with them, so I turned them into a set of tags with beautiful Alcohol Ink backgrounds. Sometimes I keep these tags in a bin in my studio, but these would also be perfect to share with crafty friends!

Step 1: To create the Alcohol Ink Backgrounds, start by cutting tags out of Yupo paper with a Tim Holtz Tag die.

Step 2: To add some interest and texture to the painted panel, I placed the Mesh stencil over it and removed some of the paint through the stencil with a baby wipe.
